Hello and thanks for dropping in.
Finishing up an old project here. I have several unfinished pieces I've revisited and completed recently. i have found this process to be both surprising and liberating.
Below is a painting idea I had begun years ago, and had left aside. I decided to revisit the world of Bossk and IG-88 below, doing some nefarious bounty hunting thing somewhere in a galaxy far, far away.
I had fun painting this , and hope you enjoy the video.
Below is a pic of the finished painting, and a gallery of shots taken after each session.
Thanks again for taking a look at my latest project, and stay tuned for next week! -Sketch Tutorial #6, for a figure in Motion.
See you then!
I am now officially offering a twice-monthly, virtual LIVE Charcoal Sketch Workshop via Zoom! The next session coming up on Sunday, October 18th from 2:00 to 2:45!
This is a new regular Basic Drawing Workshop, where we work out basic concepts like using dark and light values to create form, basic facial & body proportions, the line of action and general movement in form.
I share video tutorials in each Workshop as we approach these challenges, and work on individual projects together. It's a growing, collaborative, organic 45-minute Art Session, and a great place to learn some of the basics and pursue your Art twice a month!

Hello Everyone, Happy Sunday!
Working out a new project today to share with you, heading back to Star Wars-town for this one!
When life gets too stressful, I can always count on Star Wars to make everything right in the world. (Unless it happens to be the Rise of Skywalker, which uh, did not help make everything right in the world.)
This is Part 1 of 2 below, for 'Bounty Hunting' featuring Bossk and IG-88, who had their literal 2 seconds of fame way back when in 'Empire Strikes Back'. -They are both pictured here teamed up, preparing some dirty deed in a god-forsaken outer-rim planet In A Galaxy Far, Far Away:
-This project is a return to an idea I'd left behind long ago, and had only set up with some underlying color schemes and pencil work.
It was exciting to return to it, and breath new life into it. At this writing, I am about 80% completed with this work, and setting up the conclusion (Part 2) Video.
Below on the left is where I picked this one up again, and on the right is where we stopped at the end of the above video:
Below are all the project pics taken at the end of each session:
